Every now and then I get the real chance to hear an amazing and touching music album to review. Quite honestly I did not know who I connected with when I received some nice compliments of my music reviews from Kat Vinson & Reggie Vinson. As I started speaking with Kat I learned more and more of who Reggie Vinson is. He is an incredible musician and played on several hundred music records and many of my favorite music legends, namely John Lennon and others. Reggie has many connections within the industry, he has worked with Alice Cooper, and one of my all time favorites the late Roy Orbison, so this is a true honor and a blessing to write this review on Reggie Vinson & his latest album called “Still Got A Song In Me”
The first track is called “Still got A Song In Me” and Reggie sounds truly amazing and the song brings me back to the days where music really has a true message within the lyrics and the musicality of the song and Reggie sounds really good and does a awesome job to keep that memory alive with this song. The next song on this beautiful and amazing album is called “Looking For Love” and is in my opinion straight out of the pages of the late Roy Orbison catalog, I can really feel the “Roy” influence on this song and I love this song, in fact I find myself in repeat mode a lot for this song. “Chasing Cars” is a tremendously intricate and detail oriented song that Reggie is in tune with his amazing guitar and vocals. The next song called “American Rockers” has a real Rock ‘n’ Roll feel to it. Reggie keeps that rock anthemish sound going through it and has an real edgy feel to it. The next track called “I Remember Marilyn” a real honest tribute to the late Marilyn Monroe, and Reggie really has true inflections and total honesty on this song. The music is just outstanding, not just on this song, the whole album is a superbly crafted masterpiece and Reggie is at his finest. I heard all influences throughout the album and this album is deemed to be a classic and in my opinion will remain in the music history books for a very long time. “I Feel A Chill” the next song that is truly a beautiful song that is a true to life love ballad and Reggies vocals are so sincere and amazing and felt to the heart. The next song called “Stolen Years” has that classic eternal sound of Roy Orbison. Reggie has a way of while singing all these songs grab you and keep your ears and heart wanting more. His songs have a real pulse to them that breathes throughout them and can feel it. “We’ve Done It All” another love song with a picked up tempo that tells the story of togetherness. As I listened it seems the theme throughout this truly outstanding album that Reggie has painted a true picture with his beautiful lyrics and vocals of his amazing life and has true musical thoughfulness that one can feel throughout the album. “Tennessee Tears” is yet another going down memory lane with Reggie, recollecting thoughts and times of past, but the song is catchy and flavorful and kind of reminds me of my own life, it’s amazing that we can relate to songs and Reggie hit the right button with this song for me. “Look What You Have Done” a amazing sound that really showcases Reggies true ability to make a song sound and feel so real. As I listened to this masterpiece of an album I stumbled across the song called “”The Beauty” and this song I can really relate to, since I have met the woman of my dreams and Reggie really sums up my true feelings about her in on this song. Often playing this as one of my most treasured songs to my significant other, I have this as one of “our songs” that we play for each other. Reggie with this has really cemented my relationship with the woman in my life with his careful, thoughtful and so very expressive vocals and loved lyrics on this song, thank you Reggie, awesome. The last song on this truly wonderful, beautiful, expressive, and music masterpiece has a real feel of the rockabilly and Reggie once again showcases his true talent and inspiration he’s received all the way through his amazing musical career with the many talented and legendary musicians he’s worked with in his amazing music career. After hearing this album, it has led me to re discover more about Reggie and his illustrious career, and this guys the real deal, the real McCoy and a truly gifted and loved by me. I can’t thank Kat & Reggie Vinson enough for their true friendship and truly supportive and acts of kindness to me as a music publicist & reviewer and for their major contributions to the music industry and I am a true and loyal fan of the amazing “Rockin’ Reggie Vinson for life.
